Pi is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, and pie is probably the best circular food. On Sunday, you can celebrate the existence of both.
March 14 is a celebration of the number Pi — 3.14159 — and the best way to party on Pi Day is with pie.
Here are specials, deals and freebies to check out for Pi Day 2021 in D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia.
For savory lovers, the king of pie is pizza. At either of All Purpose’s two locations on Sunday, get two DC Brau Full Count lagers for $3.14 with the purchase of a pizza.
